    Qantas Flight 64, B747-438 VH-OJL, departed Johannesburg 16/1701 UTC, landed
    Sydney 17/0421 UTC.
    At position S49d01m E078d32m, at time 16/2204 UTC, STS098 and ISS made
    brilliant appearance, in formation, at a/c 9 o'clock postion (ie to North)
    elevation 25d.
    Both faded by 2208 UTC into approaching dawn to East, ahead of aircraft.
    I can send a screen snaphot from StsPlus, of the scenario, to anyone
    interested (after I have caught up on my sleep!).
